Hello all ,
I am new here and hoping you guys can help me. For about 1 1/2 years I have had a very small bump on my left inner thigh . It is about the size of two small grains of sand placed together (but is a perfect circle) and flesh colored. In the middle of it, it keeps making a scab (the size of one grain of sand) which is dark brown. If I pick at it, the scab comes off and some stuff comes out with it. It leaves like a little crater, and it bleeds very little, and then begins to look like it's healing. Within a month it's right back to feeling and looking like the way it was before . I have only pulled the scab off twice, because it's painful to do, and each time it comes back with the same rough scabby thing (which forms on it's own, and is not due to me picking it). Any ideas what this is? I do not carry medical insurance, so I can't get a medical opinion unless absolutely necessary. Basal Cell Carcinoma runs in my family, but everyone has always gotten this on their face and is over 60-years-old .
I wouldn't say it bleeds easily, because it only bleeds a very tiny bit, and that is when I actually pull the scab off. It has not gotten bigger at all, it is the exact same size it was when it first came up. I can also tell you it's doesn't have a pearly white translucent look around it.
I have the same exact bumps. My dermatologist looked at them and said it was something that couldn't heal. It wasn't even very thorough but he said to but some cortaid on it to thin it out. The scab part is the freakiest and you always resort to ripping it out. (This is a complete long shot but I sometimes wonder if they are some type of skin cancer from using a laptop on your lap so much.. a complete idea but you never know )
i have the same thing on my upper left thigh. It has been there almost a year now, and does the same thing. I was reading in my REDBOOK and it showed a picture of squamous cell carcinoma. It looks almost exactly like that the same descrption. "Red, crusted patch; a sore that doesn't heal: a small, red, round tip"
Has anyone figure out what this is for sure? I am scared because my Dad was exposed to agent orange and said this is a cause of it.
Check out Molluscum Contagious - most common in kids, but adults can get it, too. This type of rash, caused by a pox virus, just has to run its course - usually 6 to 9 months (but it can last up to four years)! It can be such a "p.i.t.a.", because it easily spreads on the skin. My son's pediatrician suggested retina cream on spread on the rash nightly. The bumps /rash actually have to become irritated before they go away. Good luck!
I have a smattering of them on my left shoulder blade. It started out as a red patch of skin when I was a baby, then grew into one, which formed other smaller ones around. My dermatologist calls them "birthmarks". They seem to bleed all over my clothes at times, and are larger then yours. 13 years and they still haven't healed.
I also have one of these to your exact description, it has been there months and wont go it's a perfect circle really small and a smll black scab keeps coming back in the middle of it, i also had a laptop burn near it from having it on my stomach if that is a coincidence...
I have a scab on my back below my shoulder which sometimes burns causing itching i also have a lump in the exact same place on the other shoulder??? Does anyone have any idea what they are and what i should do?
Ita crazy samething with me but I have it smack in the middle of my forehead my dermatologist has tried to freeze it off and it just takes layers off then it grows back. I've started putting garlic on it and a band aid and its working a lil bit. Email me if u kno anything.. d
